Stained Glass Window Walks
Our Window Walks are free, take place on most Wednesdays and Saturdays between April-October at 11.15 am and last approx 20 minutes. Binoculars are useful though not essential. We offer a different theme each month and no booking is required.
July’s theme is ‘Glowing Golds’. The technique of silver staining, developed in the early 1300s, added a range of yellows and golds to white glass. We will look at a number of examples to see how this really brought medieval windows to life. (No tour on Saturday 9th July).
